I'm new to the Karis Group, but so far they have been super nice and eager to help me. Thanks Ashley.
looking forward to response from my message!
Is the Karis Group and Health Insurance Company that pays for healthcare are do they get paid only to help reduce the prices for your doctors visits? What is the cost of their insurance or service? There website confuses me.
Hi there - Having a hard time getting a hold of someone over the phone...😟
They work for you not the Insurance companies!!
Great customer service and they always know what’s going on
Professional and knowledgeable patient advocates doing their best to get HUGE hospital bills reduced.
Hello; I would like to request that a member dashboard be set up. I have been trying for days to contact someone from this group who called to inform me my credit card can't be charged. I have very limited availability by phone during the work day.

She promised to send me a link where I could update my credit card information, but I have not received one. It is ridiculous in this day and age not to have a way to do that online. As I have rarely used this service and even when I have the results were not entirely helpful, I'm seriously considering discontinuing to keep it.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. I have submitted an email through your website as well.

After Accident, Patient Crashes Into $700,000 Bill for Spine Surgery

Insurance makes no sense, part 5,000:

Geico recommended & partly paid nearly $245,000 to a hospital & surgeon for a procedure. In contrast, Medicare would've paid about $29,500, with about $1,800 of that going to the surgeon & the rest to the hospital.

Many were excited about the Price Transparency Rule, but implementation has been...not great.

Between hospitals using code to hide prices from search engines or just blatant non-compliance, this call to HHS for serious auditing is greatly needed.

Lawmakers urge HHS to conduct 'vigorous oversight' of hospital price posts after reports of noncompliance Hospitals are now required to publicly post the prices they negotiate with insurers online, but noncompliance is common. A bipartisan group from the House voiced their discontent in a letter to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra.
